This immensely popular musical, Hamilton, was a huge success in the 2010s. With a talented and diverse cast, the musical retold the early years of the United States of America.

At the time, the producers had no definite plans to release the production to the general public. Since then however, Disney bought the rights to the production. If you weren’t able to see the musical when it was performing and touring on Broadway, you will now be able to watch the movie from the comfort of your own home.
